Most of us women can attest to the fact that when it comes to our jeans, we wear one or two favourites and ignore the rest in our closets (guilty). Jeans are uniquely made to fit and flatter every body shape, so don’t be dropping serious cash on a pair of you’ll only wear once (or not at all). Here are my tips on finding that perfect pair:
For the curvier woman, a higher rise will tighten up the tummy and elongate your legs. Go for a darker wash such as a solid navy or black. These hues will keep everything streamlined. Look for jeans such as the Kimmie Contour Bootcut from 7 For All Mankind.
You carry more weight on your hips and thighs, but a mid-rise jean will slim it all down and elongate those legs. Also, look for bigger back pockets such as the Brooke jeans from J Brand since they will make your behind look smaller.
To show off your figure, go for a mid-rise to flatter your smaller waist. A wide legged jean will be the most flattering since it will not only make your legs look slimmer, but create a smooth line from your waist down. A great example is the Fiona Flare by Paige Premium Denim.
Girl, don’t ever let jeans drag on the floor. A skinny jean will be your best bet if you need to hem, plus the fit will stretch you out. Jeans that hit right at the ankle are also flattering on shorter women since it will give the illusion of longer legs. Look for jeans such as the Moto Mid Stone Leigh Jeans from TopShop.
Bootcut or skinny jeans are the most flattering on tall, slender women. If you don’t want your legs to be the main attraction, find jeans with fading such as the Grupee jean from Diesel. This will give draw attention away from your leg length.
A slightly higher waist will make muscular legs will look long and lean. For athletic women, a bootcut with a wide leg will fit your thighs nicely, lengthen your legs and give your figure a more feminine silhouette. Look for jeans such the Lolita Boot from Lucky Brand.
